beginning in April, based on what the music labels charge Apple, songs
on iTunes will be available at one of three price points: 69 cents, 99
cents and $1.29, with most albums still priced at $9.99.
Ding-dong, the witch is dead! Time for me to pull my iTunes account out of hock and show my support. BTW - works fine under Wine on Linux.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Intresting... but I still dislike Itunes

What is DRM? I don't get it...
DRM is digital-rights-management, or copy protection.
Digital RESTRICTIONS Management is more like it.
Imagine a big, juicy, smelly turd that doesn't let you do what you like with the media and e-books you purchase...that is what DRM is.
"Everyone always wants new things. Everybody likes new inventions, new technology. People will never be replaced by machines. In the end, life and business are about human connections. And computers are about trying to murder you in a lake. And to me, the choice is easy." - Michael Scott (The Office)
Does this mean I can re-download stuff I've already bought from iTunes without DRM?
Jeremy - I read in one of the original rumors that you'd get a free DRM-free version of any DRM-crippled songs you have downloaded. Not sure if that's true though.
Oh ok, makes sense. The interesting thing is, I didn't even know this was existing. I never though there was some protection. At least my songs weren't protected. ???
Its about time Apple did this.

Well, peti, that depends on when and where you bought them. Most online music stores had DRM built in at one time (Wal-Mart, iTunes, Yahoo, etc). The only "major" one that never has is emusic, which is why I use that serice.
